FMO provided Ardshinbank with a guarantee for a credit portfolio of 20 million US dollars

ArmInfo.During the 33rd annual meeting and business forum of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Ardshinbank CJSC and the Dutch entrepreneurial development bank FMO signed a Guarantee Agreement for a credit portfolio worth 20 million US dollars with a term of 7 years.

The contract, signed within FMO's Nasira program, provides Ardshinbank with broad opportunities to expand its credit portfolio by attracting new MSME clients, particularly youth, women, immigrants, and entrepreneurs operating in rural areas.

Chairman of the Management Board of Ardshinbank, Artak Ananyan, highly appreciated the importance of cooperation with FMO, stating: "The signed contract is of great importance both for Ardshinbank and for our country's economy. The MSME sector is extremely important for Armenia's economic development, export promotion, and creation of new jobs. Additionally, this is a unique innovation, as there are no alternative services in the market providing the credit portfolio protection that Nasira offers."

 

"FMO has been active for a long time in Armenia and we are very happy that we are now also engaging with Ardshinbank, one of Armenia’s leading financial institutions. The Nasira transaction will support Ardshinbank in achieving its strategic goal of growing its MSME customer base, which is fundamental for the overall socio-economic development of the country.  We want to thank Ardshinbank for their trust and we are looking forward to a long-lasting relationship," remarked Huib-Jan De Ruiter Co-Chief Investment Officer at FMO.
